Window pain

Myself and Aron did a little freehand doodle on the Cardigan shop window today, using silky smooth glass pens. I say 'little', it's bloomin huge, actually. My wrist is killing me.

Can you tell what it is yet?

Beginnings of a new t-shirt design

  • Posted by aron
  • 12 January 2012

After a lovely fortnight off over Christmas and New Year we're back in the office and hard at it with new t-shirt designs for the spring range. Trying to come up with ideas got me thinking about my life and how I live it, and the things in it that I love or hate (sometimes both).

One of the things that I noticed was that I find myself glued to my iPhone. All that information right at your fingertips is an amazing thing to have, but at the same time it kinda works the opposite way. You end up consuming more information than you create, almost becoming a bit of a 'slave to the machine, man'. So I thought about how I could reflect this in an illustration for a t-shirt.

Here are a few sketches of what I've been working on. It was nice getting away from the mac and get drawing again, although, as you can tell, it's been a while since I've picked up the pencil and drawn some human forms so they're a little bit rusty. But I do like the Matisse-esque style they have.

As long as it makes the cut, the final design will be included in the spring range. We'll keep you posted on new tees via our twitter and facebook.

Thanks for reading.

Aron.

P.s. I understand there's great irony in posting these on Instagram from my iPhone.

Kate Sutton Exhibition

 

We are very proud to announce that for the next few weeks we will be hosting the work of Kate Sutton in our Staircase Gallery. We have a collection of both screened and digital prints, Christmas cards and Recipe books on display and for sale, perfect for those of you still with some xmas shopping to do.

Kate has collaborated with howies on numerous occasions, you may recall her 'tea, drink of champions' illustration and more recently her 'root veg stew' t shirt.

John at Advice to Sink in Slowly has just dropped us a line to say that their free poster scheme is now fully up and running.

If you're a first year student studying in the UK, you can now request a free poster through the Advice website.

We're also happy to announce that the free posters are funded by the proceeds made from the sales of the howies sponsored 'Find Some Place' design by Lizzy Stewart.

The Guardian has posted a gallery of the designs this morning and it's certainly worth a look at the Advice to Sink in Slowly website if you haven't already.

Keep your eyes peeled for more great howies/Advice collaborations...

Our good friend Chez has been busy recently. He's just added a bunch of new photos to his site, which is certainly worth a good look through.

Get Excited And Make Things (again)

Quite a long while back now, we printed this rather nice design by Matt 'blackbelt' Jones as one
of our T-Shirts of the Week.

It was rather popular at the time, and we've had more than a couple of people asking us
to reprint it since.

Well, we've finally bowed to your requests and it's back again.
This time on our Vintage Red blanks for men and women.

Men's Get Excited T

Women's Get Excited T

Even if you didn't see the original when we first put it up online, you may have seen a certain BBC
presenter wearing one of them recently on his new show, Man Lab.
